of america saw the document but did not show us they did any analysis to make up for merrill commissions. on the contrary, the evidence we have suggests that bank of america pulled a number out of thin air. far from being consistent with the actual experience of october or what they knew about the third quarter, the guess, wistfully assumed that the markets for collateralized debt obligation and credit default swaps would be significantly better in november and december. it was assumed that merrill lynch would almost break even for november. then the attorneys at bank of america went to work. they did not question the financial information they were given. . e financial information they were given. they begin with the assumption additional shareholder disclosure was necessary and they discussed what kind of exposure they would make but after studying the question for a week they decided the news was not sufficiently out of line from past performance than previous disclosures to warrant further shareholder disclosure. the sunmaid icuf council bank of america did not make any further discl

. we are deciding whether we are going to create jobs here in america or we're going to send those jobs overseas. and we're certainly deciding whether we are going to have a stronger energy independent america or a weaker oil-addicted america. i think the choice is clear. the challenge before us is one of political will. because americans already know how to do what this bill sets the framework for, we know how to transition to clean energy, how to reduce pollution, how to grow our economy. in my home state of oregon, with a 25% renewable energy standard by 2025, the guarantee of that market, clean energy jobs are growing seven times faster than jobs in the oregon economy as a whole. we have had three solar manufacturers move to the state in the last couple of years. we have communities in rural oregon that are producing partnerships to create jobs in the woods again, to thin the force, to return the forest health, and, in the process, reduce renewable energy from biomass. despite the recession that we currently are in, our economy is 16% larger than it was in 2005. yet, the missions si

america is under attack from without and from within. when you see the mountains of debt we are putting on our grandchildren, the bailouts, the so-called stimulus, cap and trade, and now pelosi care, this is an attack on america and our freedom. there is nothing about adding hundreds of billions in new taxes that is health care reform. massive new government regulations is not health care reform. rationing of health care is not health care reform. bureaucracy, telling doctors what they can do as they treat patients is not health care reform. public funding of abortion is not health care reform. so thank you for coming to washington.

agreement on the kinds of steps we need to take in order to lower the cost of health care in america and expand access. the bill before us in my view is a big government takeover of our health care system that will replace the current health care that americans get. republicans have offered better solutions all year on the major bills that have come to this floor. i think we had a much better solution on the stimulus bill that would have created twice the jobs at half the cost. i think our better solution on the budget clearly had less spending and less debt and lower deficits. i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman will suspend. the gentleman may proceed. mr. boehner: i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan was a much better solution to the national energy tax, the so-called cap and trade bill that was on this floor in june. and i believe what we have before us as the republican substitute is a commonsense plan that takes steps toward reducing the cost of health insurance in america and expand access. simple things like

night that could help predict america's political future. >> you can't find two more different people than me and jon corzine. >> the stakes of this election could not be higher. shepard: tonight, in new jersey, in new york, and in virginia, election machines are fired up for contests that could be a sign of what's to come for congress. and, for the white house. first, from fox tonight, an urgent recall of a half million pounds of ground beef following two deaths and dozens of illnesses across our nation. health officials say the e.coli bacteria may be to blame. remember undercooked beef can cause e.coli poisoning. if you eat it, it can make you very sick and even cause your kidneys to shut down. the federal centers for disease control and prevention now reports that two people are dead in new hampshire and new york. most likely, they say, from e.coli infection. we're told most of the other suspected e.coli infections are reported in states in new england. but the cdc also warns that the ground beef at risk has been distributed to stores all up and down the east coast, including store
that we were going to make our products, our strings in america. we are still committed to that. we have never sold one string we didn't make here in new york. >> they have one of u.s. manufactu manufactures that have adopted the lean theory. they plan to do so or have implemented it. critics say the automation eliminates jobs. he says the replaced workers can be cross trained to do other jobs. >> we do not want to play people off because lean has been effective. that is not going to help people embracing lean or help our company or our community. what we are trying to do is take those people and train them to do something else. >> reporter: like work in the guitar strap division, part of a company he acquired several years ago. those jobs were previously in china. today, long island. economists say other companies can position themselves to bring jobs home. >> lean manufacturing makes it possible to create products in the united states efficiently, cost effectively and so forth. some manufacturing should be done in china. too much manufacturing is being done in china that could be done
one of the unique advantages that america has which is the fact that we are able to develop capital and credit in a way that allows people who want to go out and take risks and create jobs to get that capital and credit. that's something that no other nation has yet been able to replicate at the levels that we have been able to do it as a nation. and we have to be careful that responding to a dries sis which had a lot of underlying causes, that we don't fundamentally harm that unique advantage that america has. and so i guess that's how i come at this. so let's look at the causes that cause this crisis. we were all there on the front line when it collapsed on us. primarily it was real estate. it was a real estate bubble. now, i've been through three of these in my professional experien experience, once as a bank attorney for a small bank in new hampshire, once as governor of new hampshire when five of my seven largest banks failed and this time. in p every instance a real estate bubble is a function of the fact that there's a disconnect between underwriting and responsibility. loans
think it's important that we clear up the confusion that's probably out across america. women are at kitchen tables trying to figure out now what is their next step. i think the next step is what they've always done, which is certainly take a look at the guideline recommendations but then have a conversation with your physician because the individual case history, the individual family history, what your body type is, what your background is is the best indicator of how often you should have this very important screening technique, a mammogram, and how frequently it should be done. >> are you telling women to ignore the recommendations of this panel? >> i'm telling women to take a look at the recommendations of the panel, which are, you know, looking globally at tens of thousands of cases, but then take that information and have a conversation with your doctor. >> are you saying that women should still consider having mammograms beginning at age 40? >> absolutely. >> some people are saying that your response to the panel's recommendations are essentially throwing this panel un
p panoply of the u.s. law. now they're going to be given a forum to make america seem bad again. criticize and mock america. it's extremely unseemly. >> it may turn out to be an opportunity for some people to get some of the justice they've been looking for for a long time. and they show that the civilian court system can succeed in certain case where is the evidence is clear, it's overwhelming, and you don't need to use all of this secret evidence or evidence that's been obtained through the torture program of the bush administration. >> families of 9/11 victims as you can imagine have some powerful feelings about holding this trial in new york. susan candiotti reports, some people say it hits too close to home. >> reporter: eight years of waiting is eight years too long for jim riches. he wants the alleged 9/11 conspirators tried in new york. the attack killed his son, a fellow firefighter. >> i want to get this moving, justice delay suicide justice denied. >> reporter: a handful of civilians got a close-up look attica lead sheik mohammed and others in a guantanamo courtroom l

which led to the deaths of innocent children? and how can america be silenced of such blatant defiance of not only the rule of law but what is considered decent and moral. this resolution is more than about two human rights activists. this is about a totalitarian system which is so afraid of its own population that it resorts to the harsh and brutal measures to conceal the truth about the deaths of innocent school children. this is about the massive human rights abuses, such as the continued percentcutions of tens of thousands of practitioners, an issue addressed in a resolution which i introduced months ago, but which is yet to reach the floor of this chamber. this is about the continued repression of the weeg you are people and engage in truth dealing with them not only in beijing but in the white house here in washington, d.c. this is about speaking truth to power and president obama during his upcoming summit in china putting human rights and religious freedom issues squarely on the table instead of just agreeing to disagree. mr. speaker, at this time, i would like to yield such ti

, opening up new opportunities for u.s. workers here in the united states of america which is exactly what is being said to president obama as he meets in korea at this moment with their leadership. with president lee and others. so i think that we need to have our attention in this congress focused on the priorities -- the priorities the american people have. fire fighting is very, very important. but again this measure will pass if not unanimously narrowly unanimously and it will do so and i hope get the resources to ensure that we never have the loss of life like those of captain hall and others. but i know from having spoken to their families, mr. speaker, that they believe that the absolutely essential for us to encourage private sector job creation and economic growth and that's why i'm talking about this priority that needs to be addressed here. now, mr. speaker, i'm going to urge my colleagues to defeat the previous question as we move ahead. why? because the issue of reading legislation is another very, very important one that is before us. there is a bipartisan proposal launched
